Since Mr. Thompson is unfamiliar with the logical fallicy of "Attacking a Strawman" Here is the Wikipedia entry:

"A straw man argument is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.[1] To "attack a straw man" is to create the illusion of having refuted a proposition by substituting a superficially similar proposition (the "straw man"), and refuting it, without ever having actually refuted the original position"

Here is the Straw man:

"And to just all of a sudden say, 'Alright, no more cars allowed in here'"

And here is Mr. Thompsons refutation of said Straw man:

"Hoping that everybody jumps on their bike and all of a sudden starts riding is unrealistic"

Here is Ryan calling Scott out:

"You're attacking a straw man. Nobody's saying no more cars. "

And here is Mr. Thompson displaying his ignorance for all to see:

"I'm not attacking a straw man! Come on, Ryan! Don't give me that crap about a straw man"

Wow, my respect for you as a person and a radio personality has just plumetted Mr. Thompson. Do you even listen to your words as they come spilling out of your mouth?
